Tesco Cabra Dublin is a €25.50 million Tesco Environmental Store. It is the first Carbon Neutral store in Ireland, to cater for a gross floor area of 59,223sq/ft.

The store features a host of cutting-edge, environmentally-friendly technologies, which help to maintain a zero carbon footprint from the store's operations. These include refrigeration which uses CO2 to cool the freezers and fridges rather than traditional refrigerant gases and a bio-diesel fuelled CHP plant that heats the store and generates electricity very efficiently.

  • Electrical Installation works for the new CHP Plant
